    Fishing charter

    Hi! We will be in Aruba and are looking for a good fishing charter for my Dad and I to do. Looking for 3 hours or a half day. I would love any recommendations! Also, has anyone fished in June? What are you typically catching? Thanks in advance!

    We had a good experience on Hatts Off Aruba and would go back again, even though we only caught 2 fish. That's just fishing, but they were professional and knowledgeable and did their best to try to get on the fish. http://www.fishingonaruba.com/

    We had 2 not so good experiences on Lucky Star. We never would have booked them the 2nd time, but we went through our concierge and they happened to book us on same boat so we gave them another try.

    I can't answer your question about June, but we caught a mahi and a small tuna.
    7 trips in and still finding things to love. #8 will be great in November!

    J-String I believe is the best. Last year I caught 3 sail fish in 2 hours (catch and release). The year before I caught a 160lb. shark. We have always caught fish on every trip. http://www.jstringaruba.com/
